SIBU: Sibu can be proud that SEGI University Sibu clinical campus at Sibu Hospital have successfully produced 109 doctors from their first and second batches.
According to the campus dean Prof. Raili Suhaili, 47 medical students graduated in 2015 while another 62 in 2016.
“Majority of our medical students are from Semenanjung Malaysia and international medical students while they are only a handful Sarawakian medical students. Thus, we hope to see more Sarawakians joining us to become doctors,’’ he added.
